Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
PPDG are winners of the Institute of Fundraising Best National Overall Campaign for their ‘Give As You Earn’ (GAYE) payroll giving scheme. Since inception, over 350 different charities, schools and voluntary organisations have benefited from a £150,000 fund generated by staff giving. Participating staff members can nominate charities and good causes in their area, and are involved in subsequent ‘seeing is believing visits’ to see how the money has been spent. The theme is 'small and local' to ensure all groups have access to the funds. An example is working with Hearing Dogs for Deaf People; the company raised some funds but also used their suppliers to offset their printing costs, provided volunteers to man the stand at Crufts and 'banked' time to fund a dog.

PPDG have a comprehensive internal communications strategy, that aims to inform and engage employees in a variety of ways, including: Workshops. Last year their Executive and People Development Directors embarked upon a companywide road show to canvass the opinions of employees regarding a range of key business areas, from IT systems to benefits/rewards. The outputs of all sessions were collated and feedback to operational and departmental heads who are taking direct action where necessary. The results of the exercise and actions taken will be communicated to all workshop participants & discussed at all PPDG site meetings. Executive Briefing: a re-vamped version of a previous communication tool, the Executive Briefing is a discussion document that shadows the Executive Board meeting, with key business updates/strategic issues released to all staff via their intranet system. All managers are encouraged to discuss its content as a standard action point within team meetings.

PPDG Group offers all employees the opportunity to nominate a colleague for a value of the month award. The award is used to identify those members of staff that are deemed to best embody their company values. PPDG operates very differently to competitors within the Welfare to Work industry; they do not have arbitrary targets for individuals and whilst operational performance is important, it is not the sole purpose of what the company seeks to achieve. The values awards highlight the other aspects in which employees are making a positive impact on the business and the wider communities the company serves. Each values winner is invited to a six monthly dinner at a top restaurant, where they meet other values winners and selected members of the Board of Directors. PPDG also take winners on a ‘seeing is believing’ tour of some of the recipients of their GAYE payroll giving scheme; a central component of PPDG’s values and beliefs.
